Community colleges remain the most accessible option for higher education and we know that, on average, community college students earn significantly more over their lifetimes than individuals who do not go to community college (according to the Community College Research Center).

Even in the face of COVID-19, Berkshire Community College, like other community colleges across the commonwealth, pivoted in the spring to ensure our students succeeded in pursuing their studies. The college made investments in faculty professional development and technology infrastructure to ensure our fall classes could be held in the safest, most accessible way while ensuring successful learning outcomes.
